God’s Revelation, Our Response

Scripture Reference: Psalm 19

The Works and the Word of God.
      For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

      1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
            And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
      2 Day to day pours forth speech,
            And night to night reveals knowledge.

      3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
            Their voice is not heard.

      4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
            And their utterances to the end of the world.
            In them He has placed a tent for the sun,

      5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
            It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

      6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens,
            And its circuit to the other end of them;
            And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

      7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul;
            The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

      8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
            The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

      9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
            The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.

      10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
            Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.

      11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned;
            In keeping them there is great reward.

      12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.

      13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins;
            Let them not rule over me;
            Then I will be blameless,
            And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

      14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
            Be acceptable in Your sight,
            O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
